Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
Own 2001 chev impala. After non use for 1-2 days, car won't start due to dead battery. Battery replaced several times, not the problem. Can't find cause of it not starting. Starts well if used on a daily basis.
I believe you have a drain on your battery. Sometimes it can be very aggravating to locate. Easiest way I know to figure it out is to first get a digital ampmeter that reads low amperage. Take off the positive cable and attach the ampmeter in line. You will probably see an amperage reading. Go to your interior fuse panel and one at a time pull a fuse. Look at the amp meter and continue to pull and reinstall a fuse until the reading changes. Once the reading changes you can read what circuit you have disabled. Then you can start your trace from there. I have seen glove box lights and trunk lights that stay on and will run a battery down in a couple of days.
Hope this helps;
